Hi there and welcome.

I know it's not what you want but I'm afraid it's all I've got!

Good Idea :-) thanks....jgpal
I'm also looking for something similar but for a different reason. I have recently invested our companies money in some iPads for use by some of our field technicians and site offices. As a means of ensuring security I have set up restrictions on the iPads to limit changes that can be made by the people using them, mainly not allowing account changes so that additional personal email accounts cannot be set up or location services turned off.
On occasion it is necessary for some changes to be made such as when passwords are changed or apps have to be added. This usually intales me or one of the other managers meeting up with the field operative to make the changes so that passwords and security codes remain private. It would be really beneficial if a remote access app or feature were available so that these changes could be made remotely.
If allowing remote access is not something that appeals to Apple I also thought that an iTunes feature or app which would allow me to make the changes to a virtual copy of the iPad. These changes would then be sent to the ipad over the net. The ipad would receive these changes and automatically update itself. This feature could be limited to changing settings and adding apps as apposed to any type of full remote access.
What you want is Apple's Configurator to set it up (if you don't already have it) then one of the MDM (Mobile Device Management) tools that allows remote management. I'm familiar with the existence of these tools, but little else. You'll need to do your own research on features, pricing, etc.
Most of what I know comes from reading Frasier Speirs' blog about using iPads in education. He mentions and compares a few MDM solutions in his recent posts. That would be a good starting place. The provided link filter's his posts for those that mention MDM.

Thanks twerppeot, I'll look into that
No problem. Please let us know what you end up doing, or not doing.
Am using a APPLE BLUETOOTH MOUSE with a remote iPad on the other side of the room. Yes the iPad is jailbroken to install the Bluetooth mouse software from cydia. It works fine.
Others can use the VEENCY software as a solution but that still requires some router programming setup skills. And other software.
You might be best switching platforms to a NetBook pc. Unfortunately. Though am still interested in solution ideas.
LogMeIn is only for the desktop, don't believe everything you read.

Updated Soti SDK allows remote control of iOS devices

Logmein is available for ipad and iPhone I use it all the time
And a nice app it is, so I hear. Still, it does not allow the remote control of an iPad. No software (outside of jailbreaking) does this, including the Soti software SDK linked. All it allows is the remote control of individual apps specifically made to be remote controlled. The iPad's main iOS screens and pretty much every non-Soti SDK app on the iPad will remain as un-remote-controlable as ever.

Developers use Soti's SDK to create mobile applications with remote access capabilities. Only applications built with the SDK have the remote access feature, Rodrigues said. For example, if workers download the popular Angry Birds game to their iPhones, that application will not be accessible to the company's IT staff, he said.
